Multiple SIM with same number

Post by allinone » Wed Mar 03, 2010 10:50 am

I have HSPA (optus) SIM which I use in the E69 mobile broadband service but if I want to use in phone to make/receive calls/SMS etc so I have to pull the SIM out of the modem and put into the phone.

Generally the SIM is in the modem sitting in my bag and is turned off, I just want to optimise the use of the SIM, only remember one number and save damage to the equipment removing SIM many times per day. Benefits to me - one number accout and benefit to Exetel - higher ARPU.

In some OS countries they have facilities for multiple SIMs using the same number, where the first SIM registers to the network, do we have this here?

Any ideas? Thanks. :)
